FINAL REPORT

Serious incident to the Boeing 777 F-GSQJ operated by Air France on 05/04/2022 at CDG

Serious incident to the Boeing 777 F-GSQJ operated by Air France on 05/04/2022 at CDG

During the ILS approach, without external visual references, in manual  flight, the PF was surprised by the aeroplane’s bank angle and flew a missed approach. During the maneuver, the simultaneous and opposing inputs by the two pilots led to the desynchronization of the pitch controls for 12 seconds as well as to two brief episodes of desynchronization of the roll controls.


The report describes the breakout mechanism in the event of a jammed control. It also recalls the need to control the risk of simultaneous control inputs and, to this end, to ensure appropriate monitoring.

TECHNICAL STUDY

Piston engine induction system icing

Piston engine induction system icing

Icing of the air intake system of piston engines is sometimes mentioned at the conclusion of safety investigations as the origin of a reduction in engine power, proven or possible. Particularly when no other hypothesis is considered.

Due to its nature, the observation of such a phenomenon by investigators or the identification of physical clues on the wreck are rare.

The BEA's reflections on this subject in the context of a security investigation prompted it to conduct this technical study.
